CocoBase® Enterprise O/R Mapping Tool Integrates With IBM® WebSphere® Version 5 Application Server Cutting Cost of Database Access Up to 85% From THOUGHT Inc.®




San Francisco, CA. March 4, 2003 - THOUGHT Inc.®, The Dynamic O/R Mapping™ Company, announces that the new release of CocoBase® Enterprise O/R version 4.5 Service Release 1 is integrated with Version 5 of WebSphere Application Server from IBM. Developers can now use the leading and award-winning Object to Relational Mapping tool, CocoBase®, to build and manage database access when creating applications to run on the WebSphere 5 Application Server. Now available for developers is the ability to easily persist the full range of data needs including complex object graphs and entire database schemas using CMP and BMP Entity Beans, Session Beans and Distributed Dynamic Transparent Persistence™.

CocoBase® is an ideal solution for the entire IBM Java tools platform as it is also tightly integrated with WebSphere Studio / Eclipse / VisualAge® Development Environments and the Rational Rose® UML Modeling Tool. The amazing combination of these best-of-breed tools with CocoBase's® Dynamic Object to Relational Mapping architecture greatly simplifies the development process and cuts the cost of database access development by up to 85%.

A main focus of CocoBase® is to provide developers a "Quick and Easy" experience for persisting data into an application. Available are step-by-step tutorials for using CocoBase® with WebSphere 5 as well as Rational Rose and Eclipse / WebSphere Studio. They cover the technical setup and details for building components with CocoBase® that deploy directly to WebSphere 5. The result is a dramatic time-savings when CocoBase® is used to build optimized components (i.e. objects) to deploy on the WebSphere 5 platform. For example, the typical developer spends on average 40 hours writing, editing and maintaining a component such as a CMP or BMP Entity Bean and this is reduced to on average just 30 minutes when using CocoBase®.

The powerful architecture of CocoBase®, the multitude of technical advances, a large customer base worldwide, major industry awards, and a mature tool shipping since early 1997 show why so many companies choose CocoBase® Enterprise O/R for their Java development.
